      Are the messages for the list archived? I assume they are as I moderate two
      non-roman collecting type lists on Yahoo Groups and they have the messages
      stored for all to get to (members that is). So as moderator, I have had to go
      in and delete several messages when this kind of posting accidentally
      happened so that they were not archived for someone to find in the future.
      Maybe Irene can go into the Groups area for the list and delete the messages?

      And I plan to spend the weekend reading the first part of Augustus so I can
      join in on my first book chat!

      Cheers,
      Pam :-)
